"WHERE DID ALL MY FRIENDS GO?"
7/28/23 Announce, 9/8/23 Release
Grand Rapids MI ska heroes Mustard Plug are releasing "Where Did All My Friends Go?" September 8th on Bad Time Records, their first new full length record in 8 years. Produced by Bill Stevenson at the legendary Blasting Room, the record marks the band's 8th studio album and their first following their 2014 release "Can't Contain It". The first single "Fall Apart" will be streaming everywhere on Friday July 28, accompanied by vinyl and digital pre-orders via Bad Time Records.
No band embodies the spirit of modern ska music the way Mustard Plug does; relentlessly dedicated to the craft, to their scene, and to a lifetime of playing music purely for the love of it. They've seen the 'waves' come and go, and through the best and worst of times have stayed true to themselves and to their fans while keeping a consistent touring schedule for 30+ years.
"Where Did All My Friends Go" finds Mustard Plug creating the most powerful, proficient, and flat out fun songs of their career... no small feat with an 8 album discography full of classics. You can hear everything that has made the band loved and revered throughout their history distilled into these 13 new tracks, along with a proficiency and polish that could only come from years of experience and the production expertise of Bill Stevenson (Descendents, ALL, NOFX, Rise Against).
You might call this new record a 'return to form' from that way it captures Mustard Plug's youthful energy and excitement, but make no mistake that Mustard Plug has never left. They've never deviated from their mission to show how important, relevant, and fun ska punk can be, and their new record makes it clearer than ever why they're able to continue whipping audiences into a frenzy around the world.
